The last few days we have been very lucky in London with the temperature soaring - it may seem that F-I-N-A-L-L-Y, we have the first signs of some warmer weather. After an April month of cold rain drizzles, think it's about time the sun makes an appearance: Hello Sunshine! ๐Ÿ‘‹โ˜€๏ธ

With the blazing heat, and temperatures up to 26 degrees (apparently today being the hottest day in the UK to date for the year) , apart from ice creams to cool us down, think it's also time for the great British Pimm's cocktail. A refreshing summer cocktail perfect for any parties.

Here's how to make a Pimm's cocktail. Our recipe is as follows:

Ingredients: (per single serving)

  • 1 Part Pimm's Summer Cup
  • Mint Leaves
  • Few slices of Peeled Cucumber
  • 3 Parts of Lemonade
  • Few segments Orange
  • Few slices of Strawberries

Method : 

  • Cut a cucumber in half. Using a peeler, peel the cucumber into long lengthy stripes. (Alternatively, you may slice the cucumber into little rounds, depending on how you would like to decorate your cocktail glasses).
  • Crush the mint in the cocktail glass.
  • Add some ice. 
  • Add 1 part of Pimm's.
  • Add the orange segments, strawberries and cucumber slices.
  • Top the drink with 3 parts of Lemonade, give it a good stir. Add a straw of your choice. We find the straws from Tiger , yup that stripey gold straw in the pictures is pretty cool. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Cheers! Enjoy and Sip happily. ๐Ÿน

Other Variations : 

  • For a non alcoholic cocktail, you may swap out the Pimm's with a cold brew iced tea.
  • For a lovely ice cold dessert, the above recipe can be turned into alcohol / non alcohol pops. Simply freezing the above in ice lollipop trays to make frozen ice lollies. Strain the fruit if you'd prefer a smooth ice lolly. ๐Ÿ˜‹
